I don’t know, I’d take the SP outfit over the NTTD for summer wear any day. Chinos over cords seems like an obvious choice if you’re facing a hot summer’s day. BC jacket would be a lot cooler as well (wasn’t it a cotton/linen blend?). Likewise for the shirt—SP TF poplin is thinner and therefore cooler than the NTTD BC’s cotton twill.

Brunello Cuccinelli has almost their entire Fall/Winter line on sale right now for 40% off.  Go to any retail site that carries them and you'll see this pricing.

Ditto — and I like the MA Sloop Suit — but the Kenton boots aren't made for summer dress up!

Do you have a link to the shirt on the BC website or a sku?  It'd help me try and track it down for you.

Bear in mind, not everything is on sale.  It's entirely possible that the shirt you're talking about did not go on sale.

Hi Gymkata thanks I believe this is the link to the shirt but I would happily go for the slim fit 8nstead of basic fit as well

Re: Sales?

seeing a lot of denim shirts out there in searches.  The sku on that link doesn't pull anything up so I'm not able to dial in on which one you want at other sites. 

Regardless, based on what I'm seeing, none of these shirts are on sale right now.  sorry!

Re: Sales?

Bergdorf Goodman is discounting the hell out of the Sloop suit. I just got one for $550 (size 52 which I'm actually hoping to swap for a 50; anyone interested?). Only a few sizes remain tho.

Only size 56 and 58 are left but Jesus that price is ridiculously low considering what Massimo Alba is asking on their site!

I know where you keep your gun!

I wouldn’t go swapping it yet Frommeyer. I took the 50 in the SA colour and then picked up a 52 in the Nero Lavato in a sale (for about the same price as you paid) about 6 months ago. Honestly, the difference was minimal and just required some tailoring to make it fit perfectly.

Yes. Considerably.

Re: Sales?

That's a bargain. I'm tempted to buy a second one but I won't lol.

Re: Sales?

Keep your eyes open.  Near as I can tell, we're gonna get hit with HUGE clearance sales in the final week of the year as retailers (especially clothing retailers) flat out dump inventory.  If you think the sales are crazy now, they should be bonkers next week.

You've given me some hope. Normally I'm between a 38 and 40. But I think the screen accurate fit is probably a size larger than normal. Just based on how the pants fit Craig as they seem fairly loose on him. Which isn't the case for a lot of the reviews I've seen of people ordering their normal suit size.

And, simply in terms of being fashion forward, larger fits are coming back into style. God help us if we end up back to that 2002 NBA draft class photo again. But I'm ok with it to a degree. The only time in my life off the rack suits seemed to fit properly were in this narrow window between 2008 and 2010.

Anyway, your experience is encouraging. I'd rather not have to shuffle through a trade.

The widespread retail bankruptcy reckoning that's coming next year is gonna bring a lot of human misery. But yeah. This is only the start of insanely good sales.

Re: Sales?

Are Mr. Porter's returns free, including postage? Their FAQ is obscurely written to focus on exchanges.
